Eyes

This song was created for Game of Bands round 255 : "Halloween VI"

Lyrics:

Eyes


I used to see life as dirt cheap, death as a fuel for my pleasure
No one ever tried to stop me, and yet I've come to see the horror
Why am I only now taking in what I took in my belly ?
And why am I only now realizing that there’s torn up corpses in me ?

I went to this halloween party, dressed like a witch.
I drank some spooky cocktail, gin and cranberries,
red like blood, with eyes of lychees and blueberries
At first, I had fun, then I locked eyes with my dish
I ate a young lamb's head, stared at its empty eyes.
And as I ate its flesh, I began to realize :
Now that i see meat as flesh, my mind is afresh

It's all making me sick and think, to think that I killed for my meal,
scarier than any horror film, the deaths are real yet feel unreal.
And yet, everyone's acting as if it were just and just normal
Am I the only one that's thinking that killing is immoral ?

Zombies don't need to rise, we won't wait to die to dine on brain matter
There's not any man-made monsters, we're the men made monsters
Witches don’t exist, yet we kill babies of other species
Ghosts aren't haunting me, It's guilt that's driving me crazy

You’re all making me sick and think, to think that you killed for your meal,
scarier than any horror film, the deaths are real yet feel unreal
And yet, you're all acting as if it were just and just normal
Am I the only one that's thinking that killing is immoral ?
Am I the only one that's aware that your victims are mortals ?

I went to this halloween party, dressed like a witch.
I drank some spooky cocktail, gin and cranberries,
red like blood, with eyes of lychees and blueberries
I still remember that lamb, my last butchered dish
Some days I wonder if I should have closed my eyes,
I could have kept smiling, and believed in my lies.
Way too late to turn back, I see past the laughters,
and see a world where it's the norm to feast on cadavers
[Exit]
